From possession to trafficking to cultivation, a drug offence conviction will affect your career, your travel, and your future.
Offences covering the possession, trafficking, cultivation, and importation of drugs are found in the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. This area of law has become more complex with the increasing frequency of medical marijuana licenses and usage across Canada. This complexity is expected to only increase with the pending legalization of marijuana.
Many drug cases involve large-scale police investigations, which will include surveillance, sting operations, wiretapping, and search warrants for property, such as a vehicle or a home.
